    I had that poster when I was a teen too! You hit this one right on the head, it's looking very much like the poster! Now all you need is the stainless reefer behind it! Brought me way back when for a minute! Thanks for sharing!

    Starting to look really nice, I like the proportions, nice stance, good colors, nice choice of wheels... One to follow.

    looking really good up tp now! Ford sure made good looking big trucks at the day. Nice job Jac, you've outdone yourself with this one.

    I think the Revell snap trucks are some of the best kits to hack up! They're inexpensive to start with, they fit nicely, you don't have to fiddle with the hoods and cabs to align, they have pretty good parts (save the rear wheels and all tires...), that can be used on many other trucks... Good castings for the bodies and straight frames. Ok, i'll admit they have their shortcomings, no brake air chambers and no sunvisors... But man, look at what the guys here can do with 'em! Impressive!

    Just like the real one! I like everything about it, I'm surprised about the 2 piece Italeri tires in the back, they look at home on this truck!! Interesting build and a nice piece!

    I like your style... I like that Kenworth and the trailers, I already said good things about that Volvo...

    That red really makes it pop! Very nice! The grill and headlights are nicely trimmed in black, good detailing behind the cab... A good one!

    You could use some aluminum tubing as a sleeve to fit over the metal axle in the hub... I did that before and works nicely. You can find those at the hobby shop.

    You've outdone yourself with this paint job Jac! Nice!

    Very nice build! The Lonestar looks great as a rotator wrecker!

    Hi Jacobus, nice start to your project! I like your rear suspension setup! I also have this kit, so I'm very interested in your build.  I see you might mount the fuel tanks right in front of the rear wheels. The cutouts at the bottom rear of the cab are there for fuel filler neck clearance. You might want to fill these cut outs on the cab if you want to install the fuel tanks like you want them, unless you want to use 4 fuel tanks... Or just leave it the way it is. This is a picture of a CL9000 which has the fuel tanks in the stock locations, if you can blow up the picture you will see the fuel cap is aligned with the cutout in the cab skirt:

    Download the ones from Revell's version on their site... :
    Same thing for the Prostar:

    I started something similar to this over a year ago and it looks pretty similar to what you're doing here, except for the sleeper "condo" extension. I guess I'm going to follow this build closely! i bought a W900B hood from P&P and replaced the cowl area with the T600 hood cowl. Of course if you have access to KJ's hood... It'll take a little less work to accomplish. Good start to this project! Anyhoo, here are some pictures of mine. I added some skirting at the bottom of the cab and and prayed it flat black for sanding at this point. I was originally planned to ude the Moebius Lonetsar frame but i forgot about the 8 airbag suspension being quite different from the International setup. I'll post more pics this week. your's just might get me started again...
